Recipe Notes

  • Alternatively, if you have a gas stove, you can roast the jalapeno by turning a burner to the highest setting and setting the pepper directly on the flame. Use a pair of tongs to turn the pepper until the skin is completely blackened.
  • To keep the guacamole from turning brown, press a piece of plastic wrap directly over top and store it in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
